Magical midweek media days

As part of our on-going services for UEFA, mmc sport participates in media days with different European football clubs. Today sees some of our team travel to Dortmund and Basel to speak to the two sides flying high in their respective European competitions, before a trip closer to home to talk to this year’s sensational FC Bayern München side.

In Dortmund, our team spoke to Borussia chairman Hans-Joachim Watzke about the importance of the club, the true meaning of the club’s motto –Echte Liebe – and the fantastic season they are having. There was also a chance to catch up with the club’s fan representative as the Dortmund fans’ excitement about the UEFA Champions League semi-final builds, as well as central defender Neven Subotic and last-minute hero, Felipe Santana.

Croatian goalscorer Mario Mandzukic and the fantastic Franck Ribery will be the two guests of honour when our team returns to Munich tomorrow. The attacking pair has been the fulcrum to Bayern’s success and as the final act of the season approaches, the pair will give us an insight into the squad’s brilliant form, their own feelings about the year and that UEFA Champions League semi-final draw.

And, as much as providing that information is part and parcel of our job, we revel in the opportunity to dispense that information having experienced it first hand. It allows our team to produce content that makes the reader feel as if they too met the likes of Felipe Santana, or discovered just how confident this Basel side are.

It’s a personal touch we are proud of and one you can count on us to continually provide.
